  • Funeral home remains open

    Early Sunday morning, we received a call that our funeral home, Huber Funeral Home in Cannelton Chapel, was on fire.  We are thankful that the heaviest damage was to the upstairs apartment, not to the funeral home business below.

    Most important to us is that everyone escaped unharmed.

  • Knitters and Knotters grateful for support

    Knits and Knots has blessed over 1,000 people with warm items each year for the past 10 years. A big thanks to all who donated money for us to purchase yarn. We were able to purchase more than 150 skeins.

    We have about 20 people making items this year. It takes a lot of yarn to bless a lot of people.

    Thank you for supporting us

  • ‘Run for Mom’ drew more than 250 people

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the “Run for Your Mother 5K Fun Run/Walk”  on Mother’s Day 2016 such a huge success.

  • Head Start: thanks for the support

    Lincoln Hills Development Corp. South Perry Head Start Parents Ground would like to thank the community for supporting South Perry Head Start children through the discount card fundraiser.

    A special thank you to the participating business: Julie’s Tell Street Café, Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant, Skinsations Esthetician Salon & Boutique, Chicago’s Pizza, Carriage Inn, Vanessa’s Unique Boutique, Bill and Dave’s Smokin Pit, Domestic Goddess Boutique, Flowers by Lesa LLC and Fiesta Grande for their willingness to assist us in this endeavor.

  • Second EMS crew needed

    I live in Clark Township and I support placing a second full-time ambulance at the north station. This should be the top priority of the county officials, especially, since they have passed the Public Safety Tax.

    It is common sense that a second full time crew should be placed at the county garage. The building is completely ready for use. This would provide better coverage for the entire county.

    This is not a Democrat or Republican issue. It is a safety issue.

  • Businesses, volunteers helped Dogwood efforts

    We had a glorious day at Rome during the Dogwood Festival.  The day was beautiful and so was the crowd. We saw so many familiar faces as well as many new ones.

    Thank you so much to the people who came to eat and visit and waited patiently in a long line. 

  • Thank You for Empty Bowls success

    Empty Bowls Project Wants to Thank their Volunteers. The event, which took place on April 9, was a huge success.  

    Each person attending the event was asked to donate either $5 for a soup dinner or $10 for a soup dinner and a ceramic bowl.  Community members donated over $2300 during the event.  Proceeds will go to the Weekend Backpack Program of Perry County.

    The success of the event was due in large part to the generous community members who donated food, supplies, their time, or their artistic talent.
